Im amerikanischen Forum hat Ghostcrawler ein interessantes Statement hinterlassen. Durch den gestrigen Patch wurde die Klassenbalance wohl doch mehr durcheinandergewürfelt als von Blizzard gedacht. Daher werden wir in den Wochen bis Cataclysm noch ein paar Änderungen erleben.

Rather than try and address multiple threads, I’m just going to plop our current thoughts in this one post. Please excuse the brevity.

  1. We think Fury, Arms, Feral cat and Retribution dps is too low and we will be buffing them.
  2. We think mage dps is too high, especially Fire, and will be nerfing it.
  3. We think Shadow priest dps is too high, but that’s largely a result of Shadow Word: Death spam, which is tough on healers. We’ll be fixing that.
  4. We think Destro warlock dps is too high, but that’s largely a result of Searing Pain spam, which is tough on tanks. We’ll be fixing that.
  5. As we suspected, PvP dps is just too high given that the health pools of Cataclysm haven’t kicked in yet. While competitive PvP is over for the moment, we still want the environment to feel better so we will be buffing resilience. This change might be reverted at level 85.

There will probably be more changes after another night of raiding and BGs. Many of the bug fixes we have made today will affect dps as well. Stay tuned.



Ich als Paladin werde mich genüsslich zurücklehnen und der Dinge harren, die da kommen werden. 😉
